The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up 115


“‎What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and work flow.” 
~ Martin Luther
There are so many wonderful features in the making of a home. This is a place where I would love for you to share your love for anything home-related. Homemakinghomeschooling and homesteading are all a part of the lovely art of home-making!

~~Please link up posts in the spirit of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 (such as recipes, godly encouragement, DIY's, frugal living, child-raising, medicine making, preparedness, gardening, home decoration, school lessons, sewing, crafts, etc). ~~ You are welcome to share as many posts as you like!


* Presenting our potpourri of monthly features
from the last month's worth of link ups.
Please visit a few of these posts and leave some comment love! *



1. Twelve Ways to Make the First Day of School Special by Cornerstone Confessions ~ There was some cute ideas here and I particularly got a smile from her idea of driving her homeschooled children to school!

2. Can't Beat 'Em? Eat 'Em! 9 Weeds You Can Eat by Healthy Green Savvy ~ I find this kind of information invaluable. You never know the future and this type of knowledge could be a blessing one day!

3. Grocery Shopping on a Budget: How to Save Money on Groceries by Medium Sized Family ~ There is some helpful advice here. For instance, I always considered the less trips to the store, the better for your budget, but Jamie brings up some good points to counteract that.

4. Farm Fresh Lasagna: Slow Cooker Recipe by Stone Cottage Adventures ~ Marci shares a delicious looking recipe for lasagna using your garden goods and a crock pot! This looks really tasty!

5. June Visual Tea/Garden Journal by The Charm of Home ~ I am absolutely smitten with this idea! If you have ever read The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady and wanted to do something similar but don't have the time or drawing skills, then you will want to visit this post to create a different but still beautiful garden journal! 


6. The Art Work of Pulling Weeds by Floyd Family Homestead ~ Some things need to be done whether or not we enjoy them. This article helps to increase inspiration for that dreaded gardening chore! 

7. How to Choose Toys that Will Change Your Child's Life by Sheep Among Wolves ~ These are exactly the types of "toys" we have in our home and I couldn't agree more with this article (especially with all the cheap and flashy items they are trying to sell to our children these days!).

8. Are You a Good Listener? by A New Lens ~ Pam shares a challenging post on our listening skills and I walked away determined to improve mine! Excellent food for thought here!

9. Simplify and Bloom Where You are Planted by Quaker Hill Farm ~ I love these kinds of reminders! Sometimes our homes become a cluttered environment or sometimes we are waiting for "this" and "that" to really make a home. Here is some sweet encouragement to "simplify and bloom where you are planted"!

10. Tea Room from Old Windows and Doors by Penny's Vintage Home ~ What a charming place Penny and her husband created! I would love to do something like this when we are empty nesters (but I would have to call ours a coffee room)! :)

  2. Great features this month, and I love the painting. I'll be doing laundry today in a button blouse, denim skirt and flats instead of a hat, heels and polonaise, though. ;)
    Happy Monday to you!
